I'm so happy to be finally adding my handspun yarns back to my Etsy shop, after spending a good few months being too ill to get anything done properly. I had lost all interest in my passion and craft, but I think I am on the mend and getting back to work doing what I love x

With an arrival at work like this, who could stay away?

We must really be Busy little Bees, because the Sunflowers even burst through the stone walls to greet us!

Here is my latest boy. He is an Effalump, made from Mohair, stuffed with wool and weighted with steel shot.

he has boot button eyes and a silk ribbon.

He is quite heavy, but don't tell him as he's very sensitive about his weight.

He has been made from two different types and shades of Mohair, and I used Falkland carded wool batts to stuff him with.

He is 9 Inches tall.

I thought i'd post a picture of my favourite girl i'm sorting at the moment. She is adorable, a bit of a mystery as I know nothing about her.

I just love her face, and her handmade felt clothing, wobbly hand sewn arms and legs.
